When I try to boot the LiveCD, my monitor shows that the resolution is
too high / out of specification. I end up with a blank screen and have
no way of accessing Fedora.
I tried booting with the installer option of "resolution=1024x768",
but the LiveCD appears to not accept that command.
Video card is a Matrox P650, the monitor is a Compaq V75, CPU: P4, 2.8
GHz, 1 GB ram.
Question: Does the installer check the monitor resolution on boot up?
In the case
of Kadischi, the resolution range is predefined using
Kickstart configuration files.
1) resolution= is an Anaconda parsed parameter.
2) vga= is a kernel parsed parameter.
3) You are not looking at "the installer" when you boot a LiveCD..
unless something has changed I am not aware of.
3a) ISOLINUX and GRUB are both bootloaders, but not installers.
My suggestion to you is to use a Kickstart configuration file using a
resolution and Hsync Vsync rates
which match your CRT or LCD.
If you are not meaning a LiveCD created by you with Kadischi, please
elaborate next time.
Hope this helps.
